Surely that is a show where forming a bubble for the week of filming is required, otherwise it isn't really practical to film.


It isn't necessarily filmed over a week, it is just made to appear that way. The couples no doubt come into contact with many other people between filming.

I've noticed that Doctors have started to utilise families of actors for the show now. They have been doing this for extras for a while and bringing in the family of cast members when required to act as body doubles, but in recent weeks, they are now using acting couples, siblings or parent/child.

It is making things look a lot more realistic, especially when the characters would be in close contact in real life, such as child birth scenes.

Good news if you are part of an acting family and auditioning for any roles with them at the moment!

Realistic and Doctors are not two words I would normally associate together with that programme.

Doctors unrealistic? Never! Very Happy

I am sure that GPs up and down the nation always have time to pop out and help a patient, often for completely non medical reasons, at the drop of a hat and with no apparent concern of the impact to other patients this will cause. Equally, I am sure they are all as loose with data protection, confidentiality and all other rules as long as they are helping. Most importantly, I am sure they all have the satisfaction in their job that their brilliant diagnostic skills mean that a patient never comes in twice!

There's a reason it's frowned upon if you list "Doctors" or "Casualty" as your primary sources of 'experience' in your medicine application... :p

Your Honor worked Covid quite well into later episodes with the need for fewer people in the courtroom scenes fitting seamlessly in with the storyline at that point. Of course outside of the courtroom scenes life seemed to continue as normal, so presumably they were filmed prior to production being halted.


In other scheduling related news Fawlty Towers finds itself filling half an hour of the BBC1 schedule from tomorrow.

Davina has withdrawn from the reboot of Changing Rooms due to it being pushed back several times so it now clashes with her schedule (presumably the Masked one in particular!)

I did forget myself the reboot was even a thing!

I assume they'll get a Channel 4 face for the role like Kirstie Allsopp as a replacement.

Last night's Line of Duty perhaps inserted a couple of extra scenes with everyone wearing forensics suits and face masks, than they might have originally intended to !

I always assumed you wore face masks when dealing with forensics, regardless of the status of a pandemic.

CSI in its various iterations always used to annoy me because none of them ever wore the suits or the masks when going to the crime scene.
